Angat Bayanihan Meeting Registration

Ngayong araw, nilulunsad namin ang #AngatBayanihan — ito ang ating VOLUNTEER PROGRAM sa Angat Buhay kung saan puwede kayong mag-ambag ng oras, talento, o kahit anong tulong para sa agarang pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan.  Dito, puwede kang magsagawa ng iba’t ibang klase ng paglapit at pagtulong sa kapwa, lalo na para doon sa mga nakilala natin sa ating mga pag-iikot sa iba’t ibang parte ng Pilipinas.  Ilang halimbawa ng pagbabayanihan sa pamamagitan ng Angat Buhay ang agarang pagkilos ng volunteer groups sa Abra at Ilocos provinces na tumugon sa pangangailangan ng mga nasalanta ng lindol. Bago pa man iyan, nagsagawa rin ng relief operations ang ating magigiting na volunteers para sa apektado ng Banaue landslides. Nariyan din ang mga kabataan sa Maynila na magsasagawa ng kanilang medical mission sa komunidad. Nitong nakaraang Sabado, may individual volunteers na bumisita sa ating Community Learning Hub para magbigay ng mga libro para sa ating learners. Napakaraming p

DA 6 provides equipment, marketing assistance to agri sector

ILOILO CITY, Oct. 10 (PIA) --The Department of Agriculture (DA) in Western Visayas has continued to provide support to farmers and fisherfolk.

This support to the agriculture sector in the region includes equipment acquisition and marketing assistance.

“The government’s intervention into the agriculture sectors is aimed at boosting our inclusive growth. We want to provide our farmers with better opportunities and means so they can maximize their income,” Presidential Assistant for the Visayas Michael Lloyd Dino said.

Dino said the COVID-19 crisis has clearly exposed the importance of the agriculture sector, and so it deserves to be prioritized in terms of government aid intervention, said a press release from the Office of the Presidential Assistant in the Visayas (OPAV).

The DA 6 turned over P7.6-million worth of agricultural equipment and infrastructure to the Bariga-Magdalo Farmers Irrigators Association Inc. (BMFIAI) in Barangay Bariga, Banate town, Iloilo.

The assistance includes one P2-million rice combine harvester; one P1.3-million mini four wheel drive tractor; one P1.3-million mechanical rice transplanter; and a P3-million multipurpose center.

The assistance is expected to support the Community Hybrid Rice Model Farm in Banate.

“It is the first community-based model farm for hybrid rice in Western Visayas, covering 100 hectares of rice area,” OPAV Assistant Secretary Jonji Gonzales of said during the Oct. 5 Laging Handa Network Briefing hosted by Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar.

Of the 1000 farmers association in the region, the Bariga-Magdalo farmers group was chosen as the first recipient of the project, Gonzales added.

The DA-6 has urged the association to use the equipment properly by creating a policy on how to manage them.

The farmers group is also urged to come up with income-generating activities to raise funds for the repair and maintenance of the machines.

Aside from providing farm equipment, the DA 6, in partnership with some local government units (LGUs) in the region, has started marketing initiatives that have helped achieve an accumulated P318-million sales of agri-fishery products in Western Visayas.

The agency’s program on Kadiwa Ani at Kita through Kadiwa outlets, Kadiwa-onwheels and online modes here, which was launched in March, the Kadiwa ni Ani at Ki, has generated total sales of more than P25.947-million.

Meanwhile, the Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division of DA WV directly linked farmer’s organizations to local markets, generating sales of P24.359-million worth of agri-fishery products.

The Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita has helped ensure food availability and access to affordable products in the region.

The different LGUs in the region also helped the farmers and fisherfolk by buying an estimated P267.8-million worth of assorted farm products, which they used in their relief operations.

The LGUs' initiatives benefited more than 385,000 farmers and fisherfolk, Gonzales said.

“The joint efforts of DA and LGUs aimed to uplift the livelihood and income of small farmers and fisherfolks in Negros Occidental and Panay amid the global crisis,” he pointed out. (PIA6/Titus Borromeo/OPAV)

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

'Di kami nagkamali, we already expected those things to happen... You're making fun of our opinions pero 'di niyo magets na para 'yun sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na.
